GenComm Spring '21 Series of H₂ Webinars

Webinar 4:

Hydrogen Demand, Use and Future Production

About The Webinar

The GenComm Spring '21 Series of H2 webinars is focused on SMARTH2. Looking at how we can optimise GreenH2 to deliver increased benefits across the hydrogen value chain, accelerating cost reductions for hydrogen production, transmission, distribution, retail, and end applications.
Underpinned by a global shift of regulators, investors, and consumers toward decarbonization, hydrogen is receiving unprecedented interest and investments.  At the beginning of 2021, over 30 countries have released hydrogen roadmaps. The industry has announced more than 200 hydrogen projects and ambitious investment plans. Governments worldwide have committed more than USD 70 billion in public funding.

Hydrogen is now a fundamental pillar of energy policy of the EU as it transitions to a net zero future. It is a key component of the EU Strategy for Energy System Integration and has been included in the TEN-E framework. To unlock hydrogen’s benefits the EU hydrogen strategy5 targets 6 GW of electrolyser by 2024 and 40 GW by 2040, with heavy-duty transport identified as a key sector.
Globally, Governments are recognising the hydrogen opportunity and need for government support and have implemented hydrogen strategies whilst others are developing ambitious hydrogen plans.
Hydrogen is the catalyst driving Europe’s energy transition. Optimising this journey delivering SMARTH2 through valorisation of the hydrogen supply chain, production, storage and use to meet future need is key to creating a successful hydrogen Europe.
Webinar #4 in the GenComm SMARTH2 series will examine how countries are scaling up and optimising production from additional green energy resources to meet current demand and opening new avenues of generation for utilisation.

The series of webinars will run from 10th March  through to 27th May and will cover such topics as hydrogen optimisation, supply, infrastructure & storage, demand & use and stakeholder engagement.
